Much better than I expected.  I was pleasantly surprised.  I kind of had this idea this was book was going to be a typical sweet little Amish love story.  
This genre isn't really my favorite and I went into reading this book with a preconceived idea. 
I was totally wrong!  I couldn't put it down!  I had to force myself to put it down and go to bed.  I didn't work the next day so I finished very quickly . . . 

About the book: 

A Dream of Miracles (Thomas Nelson, April 2016)

Amish widow Mattie vows never to love again . . . until a suspicious outsider with a shadowy past comes crashing into her fragile world.

Mattie Diener can barely keep it together. A young Amish widow and mother of two young children, she faces the lingering heartbreak of lost love, her son's mysterious illness, and a torrent of accusations that threaten to undo her.

Bo Lambright is a fast-rising social services investigator whose high-society mother won't rest until she finds his Mrs. Right. Despite Bo's worldly success, the raw ache of a shadowy past and a series of unsettling dreams have left him reeling.

When Mattie and Bo cross paths, all signs point to disaster. Yet as they face a crucible of trials and tragedies together, longings begin to stir that seem destined only to end in more heartbreak. Is a miracle possible---not only of healing but of forbidden love? What secrets lie in Bo's dreams? And will Mattie find the courage to face her uncertain future . . . or will she simply run away?

What I enjoyed about the book was the interesting storyline it indeed kept me on the edge of my seat.  It was fast paced and intriguing in a strange sort of way.  I don't want to reveal too much to take away from this great story!  

The characters were believable Mattie is sweet and innocent and Bo is honest and dependable.  Exactly the kind of person you hope is a CPS worker.    

The sub characters are believably as well some you end up liking.  Some you don't.  Some your really not sure about till the end.   

                  Overall I give this book 5 stars.  
                     would recommend this book

I was offered this book from Litfuse and received a complimentary copy in exchange for my honest review.
